Dr. Monique T. Mills research employs mixed-methods to examine the cognitive, social, and linguistic resources that school-age African American children draw upon to narrate, or tell stories. The overarching goal of her research is to develop culturally-fair assessment tools that capture the spectrum of language ability in school-age African American english speaking children. Mills directs the Child Language Ability lab which examines adult perceptions of narration and dialectal code-switching between African American english and mainstream American english in school-age children.
